Reviewed 8 September 2008

I stayed here on business but since it was booked and paid for by the company I was visiting I can't comment on value for money. It was in a great location though, very central as others have mentioned.
The room was nice and big, with separate toilet and bathroom. There was no minibar or tea/coffee making facilities, just one bottle of water which I think was priced at €4.
Breakfast was good, though it got a bit busy at times.
It's not really a hotel for staying in for the evening though, the bar is miniscule, as is most of the ground floor, but then there's no excuse not to go out, there are plenty of other places for food and drink on the doorstep.

Stayed for three nights for a meeting. Modern hotel with a rather cold international aesthetic: could be almost anywhere in Europe. My room on the fifth floor had a nice view up to medieval Town Hall and to the cathedral if I stretched my neck. The hotel is well placed for the traditional heart of Aachen, with its many pavement bars and cafes.

Room clean, modern and irregularly shaped. Buffet breakfast pretty much what one would expect, served in a room with windows onto the street. Main negative point is the bar, where the bar itself and the room for drinking in are separate and both lacking any ambience.

Our nicely refurbished room was extremely comfortable, bright, clean, airy, and nicely furnished. The bathroom, although lacking a tub, was quite large. The hotel location was excellent for sightseeing in Aachen. The breakfast was the best we have ever had in our trips to Europe. We were absolutely delighted with our stay.

Tucked away in the middle of the one way system near Aachen's Dom is the Hotel Aquis. Some of the reviews I have read on Trip Advisor point to tired room furnishings and outdated decor. 12 months ago, they may have had a point.

However, the hotel has just undergone a major refurbishment. The foyet area is now very chic in a minimalist black and white colour scheme.

Breakfast here is brilliant and great value. The rooms are comfortable, flat screen TVs, safe etc. No minibar though nor tea/coffee making facilities. Also, there are no bath tubs - or there have never been in the rooms we have stayed in. Check with the hotel first.

The hotel's selling point is it's location. From here it is is a 2 min walk to both the Dom and the Rathaus. Brilliant! There is a small parking garage under the hotel for 9Eur a day.

Finding this hotel by car is a nightmare however. Buy a GPS beforehand! There are little brown signs saying Aquis Grana but they do not really help.

Stayed here in December 2005 and also in December 2007. My, how things have improved...
Gone are the 70's bathrooms and bedrooms and in are new contemporary styles. We had no complaints and the hotel is ideally located for the Christmas markets.
Will probably stay there again.

After reading reviews on this sight I was not sure what I'd find. I thought the hotel was fine, although there were some things I didn't like, The twin beds were way too close together, espically with a snoring roommate. They were not able to be moved due to a permantly mounted night stand on one side. I really like that the large window could be fully opened. It was great to be able get fresh air and have a great view of the Cathedral spires. The bathroon looks nothing like the photos listed for the hotel. Older but user friendly. The water pressure was great, but the hair dryer is very weak, bring your own! The continental breakfast was a nice plus every morning. A good variety. The location is wonderful. In the heart of the city. The Cathedral and town hall are less than a minute walk. Wonderful resturants all around. The bus station is a block away. I would definatly recommend this hotel.

Stay in Aachen for 2 nights.
First night in Aquis Grana: its a basic hotel. Located in the center but has noting special.
Should find better hotels for this price, also in the city-center. Room was basic, bed was ok and the bathroom was good. Breakfast was a basic buffet. Its just a correct hotel nothing more... (second night in Quellenhof: great! see review)
Helping to separate the good from the bad hotels; please write your review!

have a nice trip
